Cross Stitch

To keep myself sane and to give me a project to keep my hands busy that also lets me clear my head, I have been working on a cross stitch. It's taking me quite a while, so it's not really much to look at currently, but I can tell you it involves Hufflepuff and something that badgers do best. I don't know if any of you have done cross stitch before, but when you get patterns that involve lots of colors, it's really difficult to think about anything other than counting stitches. Which is great for me, because if I can have time to shove everything school related out of my head for a few hours a week, I am much better off! I only have a few weeks until I present my thesis, so all things anti-stress are quite a relief.

So here are a few cross stitch goodies for you to look at. They aren't your typical cross stitches, either, which I think makes them a little extra special!

The last one I actually saw in person at Crafty Supermarket last weekend and the ladies from Purple Hippo Stitches are so funny! 

So what do you all think about cross stitch? Are there certain kinds of projects do you do when you need a laugh or just need to clear your head?
